Thanks Mark! The funny thing is we were in this beautiful mountain property and we found this old abandoned cabin that was falling apart with this couch inside. In other words, I'm not sure if the property owners are happy that I photographed this spot :). But I loved it too.

Jeffery I didn't light for the woman as much as I lit for the pose. If I had light from the right (with strong directional light) she would have been in his shadow. My approach for this shot was to set up the pose, then light the scene. I have a shot from this scene with an overhead boomed umbrella, but it's too flat for my taste. Good ideas for the future thought...thanks!

That makes perfect sense of course and there is usually a reason good photographers do something the way they do. That's why I ask as politely as I can just to see what they're thinking without offending. Thanks for the explanation.

Using strong directional light is harder to pull off so I'm impressed when you guys/gals do. It would be much easier to do the umbrella thing. Badda bing bada boom.

Yep, cracking couch shot, Patrick.


cheers, juice (Canon shooter, Elinchrom lighter, but pretty much agnostic on brands.)

@ dinko love the textures.. i am one that likes the extra stuff added to an image.. nice model shots and light

@ callaesthetics nice work on the balance of the light !

had a chance to work with my coworkers daughter.

Megan is a senior in one of the 4 surrounding high schools..

we found the perfect look for her..
this pose made her eyes open, and she gave us this perfect expression.

she is stunning in person and as photographed..

her dad boomed the westcott softbox for me slightly out of camera view. camera right..

lighting was a single soft box 580 EXII with 1/4 cto gel

wedding and senior season is about to happen again..
